... the vomiting bug, campers and staff are throwing up for no reason and feeling ill, just sick everywhere. the 8th was another 4k race, but i threw up at the start line just before the start of the race. a camper was sick at 4:00am last night all over the floor in our bunk, and people where sick on the floor in the dining hall. oh well, even this shall pass.
so i will leave it at that, next session starts in about a week, and i think there is less kids. see what ...
... Not a great selection of their own beers, but a good selection of local beer. And if we looked just right between the trees located across the highway from the restaurant, we could actually see the river - the Susquehanna River, I believe. We have crossed and re-crossed that river about 20 times over the past week. It runs from New York south through Pennsylvania and into Chesapeake Bay in ...
... For the first half an hour it seemed like the instructions were drive one half mile and take ramp to the right. I felt like we were going in circles until we made it to I-280 which later became I-80. I think we have now been at both ends, east and west, of I-80. Getting to Steamtown was a much of a challenge as getting out of Jersey City. The entrance is not obvious and, after I passed it up, it took us three more tries to find the entrance. It was way too easy ...
... cant turn down the opportunity for all you can eat. basically im going to come back fat.
on wednesday after a normal routine of meetings and moving wood & machinery without PPE, it was sports day. i played baseball and the Americans are very passionate about that. there was also a deer that ran past the field. there was other sports too, like dodgeball etc.
that night we went to the canteen where they serve very good pizza from a guy named Luigi ...
We're learning a lot about navigating our way around the country. Before we left Olympia we both spent weeks planning our trip. We used Google Maps to plot courses that avoided freeways so we could really see the country. Besides, our car isn't at its best on the freeway. We bought an I-pad so we could navigate around cities and find our way to out of the way places. Right now I'd trade all of this planing and the I-pad in for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Schrute Farms Honesdale
Gives a good insight into beet production
The great thing about this place is that you can observe the whole process from planting to pickling.
The owner, whilst not overtly friendly, was very helpful and offered to sell us his crossbow. We declined (as we already have one).
I believe he may have a glass eye as I was not sure where to look.
This B&B is certainly unique. From the 7am recorder wake up calls to the dinner conversations on how to prevent bear attacks, to the moo-faced guy constantly wearing a tie all day long. My wife mentioned the guy wearing the tie is the owner, but he seemed to be constantly staring at us as if he was expecting us to steal the plastic-ware at breakfast.
Fact: Best Beet Farm stay ever
Fact: Schrute Farms is the only 60 acre beet farm that allows guests to perfect their hunting skills on the crossbow range.
Greatly Improved Accomodations
As a returning guest to Schrute Farms, I must note the new bathrooms, which represent a notable improvement over what I can only call a quaint, yet poorly dug, outhouse, which was in use during my last visit. This upgrade notwithstanding, I was pleased to see that in lieu of the ersatz Amish quilts, ubiquitously seen in area B & Bs, guests at Schrute can still sleep in toasty comfort under layers of native pelts.
Fine...if you like going to the bathroom under the porch!!
The owners (a man named Dwight and his cousin) are a bit odd, but nothing was as odd as the only bathroom...under the porch! A little warning would be nice. On the other hand, free use of paint ball guns and potato rifles were unexpectedly fun! Just be warned, the owner thinks he is a deputy sheriff and will watch you very closely.
Trick or Treat
Looking for a different place to stay during the Autumn leaf peeping season-Try Schrute Farms B and B. The place has a rustic feel to it. Not your typical B and B. No Victorian bedrooms, no frills-reminded me of my younger days visiting my grandparent's farm. Twin Beds, large breakfast consisting of eggs (hard boiled) and bacon and milk (beets optional)-typical farm fare. Enjoyed Mose tour of beet farming and Dwight's down to earth practicallity made this an unexpected travel experience. The atmosphere tied in with Halloween (I felt I had been tricked into a romantic nonexistent atmosphere. But in the end-it turned out to be a treat) Yes, next year it'll back to Cape Cod for the foliage, but my trip to Schrute farm was something I'll never forget.
Definitely will go back!
The best beet farm I've ever stayed at! Definitely recommended!
Schrute Farms delivers!
The architecture reminds one of a quaint Tuscan beet farm, and the natural aroma of the beets drifts into the bedrooms and makes you dream of simpler times. You will never want to leave your room. The informative lecture will satisfy all your beet curiosity, and the dawn goose walk will tug at your heart strings. Table making never seemed so possible. Great story to tell your friends. Plenty of parking! The staff's attention to detail and devotion to cleanliness was limitless. From their enthusiastic welcome to the last wave good-bye, Schrute Farms delivers.
Stay away - proprietor is crazy!
I have to warn people about the proprietor of Shrute Farms - he may portray himself as a gentleman farmer, but he is not what he seems!
He killed my cat, sprinkles!!!
Who knows what he might do to you or your loved ones....
